Welcome to the Asexual Visibility and Education Network. AVEN hosts the world's largest online asexual community as well as a large archive of resources on asexuality. AVEN strives to create open, honest discussion about asexuality among sexual and asexual people alike.
Unlike celibacy, which is a choice to abstain from sexual activity, asexuality is an intrinsic part of who we are, just like other sexual orientations. Asexual people have the same emotional needs as everybody else and are just as capable of forming intimate relationships. To find out more about asexuality, click here.

For a summary please see The Master Thread and also the Ace Week website. To get involved in future events please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
NEW! The Ace Community Census is now open for a limited time only. This survey collects demographics and experiences of members in the ace community, including asexual, demisexual, gray-asexual, and related identities. Anyone is welcome to take part.
